One of the best games of last year was Rayman Origins. The cartoony visuals and fast-paced platforming was a stark contrast to the grays and browns of the holiday shooters.3DS owners have had to wait a bit longer to play Rayman Origins, but the wait is nearly over.
According to an anonymous tip Kotaku received, a sequel to Rayman Origins may be in the works. The tip included a few screen captions from Arkenford, a marketing survey site which Ubisoft is a regular client of.
The screen captions depict a less outlandish setting in which ghosts, dragons and Greek gods may be a part of. From what can be seen on the screen captions the four player, drop-in/drop-out gameplay of Rayman Origins has been maintained.
Kotaku has contacted Ubisoft about the screen captions, but has yet to receive a response.
In addition to the tip, Kotaku did receive some screen shots as well:

The UK Sales charts are in and its no surprise to see sports giant Fifa 12 still going strong at number 1. This is the 5th consecutive week that EA’s footy sim has been leading the pack, beating out the likes of Skyrim, Modern Warfare 3 and Just Dance 3.
